Obasanjo was a troublesome student at National Open University, says Vice Chancellor

The Vice Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Professor Vincent Ado Tenebe, on Monday gave a glimpse into former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s time as a student of the institution. Below is what the VC said about him…
“When Obasanjo became a student of the institution, he thought that it was an easy thing to do. When e
was given all the courses, he realised it wasn’t easy and so he had to defer his admission. He said 'I wouldnot take part in this until I finished my tenure as President'. So he never studied while he was the
President until he completed his tenure, then he started the course. He did a Post Graduate Diploma in Christian Theology. He was a very troublesome student because he will not start calling until 12 mid night and keep you online until about 2.00a.m. Every time he gives us trouble, we pray that he graduates. He did and his certificate was valid. Obasanjo was a very brilliant student and I can tell you there were lots of controversies when his papers were being marked. I won’t disclose the secret of how our papers are marked but it is marked from Port Harcourt to Lagos, Kano, Maiduguri and the markers will never know whose paper they are marking. So the old man is intelligent, his certificate is valid and was done according to rules and regulations of the Nigerian University Commission.”
